Tips for Using Your House for Short-Term Rentals

Summary: Renting out your house could be a great way to make some money on the side. There are numerous techniques you can use to give your guests an enjoyable stay.


Whenever you make additions or renovations to your house, it is worth keeping in mind how the changes will ultimately impact the overall value of the living space. Even if you are not currently thinking about selling the house or renting it out, it is beneficial to at least be aware of how your house would do on the market.


There are services out there that allow people to rent their houses out for short periods of time. Rather than renting it out to tenants for over a year, you can put your house on the market for people to use for up to a few weeks. If this sounds appealing to you, there are simple tips you can follow to make your house more welcoming for guests.


Keeping it Simple


When you are having guests stay at your house you know that it is important for them to feel both welcomed and relaxed. By adding too much to the house in an effort to make sure the guests have an enjoyable stay, you might actually be doing too much. Keep the design choices simple for a clean and elegant look. Additionally, a clean layout will make the house easier to clean, as you get the house ready for the next guests.


Make it Memorable


Your guests will be staying at your house for only a short period. If your guests are new to the area they will want to get the full experience, while they are in town. If your area is known for warm, relaxing breezes in the evening, you might want to build a porch for guests to unwind on. Think of furniture and design choices that will give guests an idea of how locals live.
